Thanks to a grant from our Presbytery’s “Penny Hill Impact Fund” the Atlanta Children’s Shelter (ACS) renovated and opened a new 5 year old kindergarten class and dedicated it this week as “Penny’s Place”. ACS is a preschool for children experiencing homelessness and located at North Avenue Presbyterian Church and our son, Nicholas, is on the Board of Directors. Penny’s first “calling from God” was rocking babies at Peachtree Christian Church and her whole life was dedicated toward lifting up children. She hoped her legacy would especially bring justice to children in great need. Here is the Instagram that our son, Philip, posted:
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
In October we will travel to Brazil for a celebration of PRECE and get to see plans for the elementary school to be built in Penny’s name as well. Will relay those details to all of you soon. Please stay in prayer about the “good works” that are still being generated by Penny’s vitality and advocacy for children.
